IHMC Robotics Open Source Initiative



A huge part our research effort is the sharing of our findings through both our publications and our actual algorithms and approaches. To maximize its effectiveness, we have open sourced our software to provide open access to resources and knowledge that we have developed over the years for our fellow researchers, scientists, engineers and hobbyists in an effort to advance the field of robots. This includes many packages, algorithms, and examples, including our control algorithms for walking and manipulation that were used to power the Boston Dynamics atlas robot in the DARPA Robotics Challenge, and Simulation Construction Set, which is our cross-platform, in-house simulation library used to develop, simulate, and analyze control algorithms for our robots . The software is available under the Apache 2.0 license.
